Can't be held responsible for something that was just filed and has yet to be won. (I'd like to think the lawsuit includes the officer and not just the PD as a defendant.* The officer won't be entitled to civil immunity for wilful/malicious actions. That is, If the kid wins; however, well, Georgia ... and not merely dependent on a given favorable jury outcome but also the finer points of the law and an inevitable appellate marathon.

* If it doesn't, the teenager has a very bad lawyer and might want to save his tears for that instead of the rest.
